Three Hymns for Two Violins violin duet
(2009) Or, in its complete silly title, "Three Hymns for Two Violins in One Key with No Accompaniment" :), is a very-happily completed project that began in 2005 with the writing of a simple two-violin arrangement of "A Poor Wayfaring Man of Grief," written for my little sister and a friend for the Joseph Smith celebration. I'd always wanted to write more arrangements like that since due to their ease, perfect for beginning or early intermediate violinists. Some time in 2007 I started toying with a like "Spirit of God" arrangement, but never finished it. Then, in December 2007 when I started charging for my music, I felt really guilty that someone was paying for some dinky little song, but it has been quite popular! So to give patrons more for their money, I finished the "Spirit" arrangement (in a cool 3/4 meter), and added a slower middle piece, "Ye Simple Souls Who Stray," (which as of this writing is my current fave hymn), and stuck the "Poor Wayfaring" song at the end.
